red velvet cupcakes

i planned to have a really cool, inventive title for this post, but couldn't think of one. so this 'book' is exactly what it says on the 'cover', and i'm going to be sharing with you these scrummy red velvet cupcakes i made at the weekend...
just before i start, i'd like to say that a) i am now better, yay! and b) this is my first foody post so please tell me how to improve!

i'm not going to pretend i made this recipe up, as it's way too technical (it has oil, and bicarbonate of soda in it!) for me to work out in my head, so i used a recipe from the hummingbird bakery. you can find the recipe online here, as i followed it exactly.

 they are delicious, and i would definitely recommend you make them. to present, i just piped the icing on using my piping bag, and then crumbled a spare cupcake over the top for a nice bit of contrast! i also used these spring-y cases in different colours!
 they're just the perfect not-so-healthy snack, and it's a really great recipe!
hopefully my next food post will be a bit more than sending you to a recipe but i'm better at creating savoury rather than sweet recipes.
